I'm bontai Joe from the foothills of the Poconos in Pennsylvania. I'm 47, happily married with a teenage daughter. I work as an industrial designer for a company that manufactures vibrating dryers and screeners. I bought my first 316 Deere in 1979 and my second 316 in 2003. I owned and operated a lawn maintenance business from 1979 to 1985 and worked part time at a Deere/Gravely dealership from '80-'81. I'm on these forums to find ways to keep my old machines running, add improvements when I can and pass along what I know from my own experiences. This forum looks interesting, but I'll be still surfing on the others I know.
